Pittsboro - On February 4, 2005, seventh and eighth grade students from Perry Harrison school participated in a career day.

Presenters included Sheriff Richard Webster, fireman and school board member Norman Clark, scientist at Glaxo Smith-Kline Marilyn Jansen, artist Sally Sutton, chef and manager at Fearrington Market Jonathan Chell and Hospice nurse Libby Hart.
